Giordana Acqua + Vento 200 Winter Jacket
Extreme Comfort in Extreme Conditions
The AV 200 Jacket is a mid-weight model that follows the form of the warmer and heavier AV 300. It includes many of the same signature features, a high collar, long tail, and lots of Pixel® reflectivity. A lighter backed windproof material on the chest and the sleeves provides heat retention and moisture management plus the wind and water resistance of the AV 300. Designed for slightly milder winter days, the AV 200 can be used in a wide range of temperatures.
The back of the AV 200 is the mid-weight, water repellant Acqua Zero Eco® treated ThunderbikeTM fabric. This new version provides more protection, repels water and has a very low absorption rate so it retains less water and therefore remains lighter than untreated fabrics. Even when soaked it retains its breathability aiding in efficient core temperature management. As with all Aqua+Vento jackets, the use is dependent on your intensity level. The AV 200 Jacket is also available in a short sleeve version.
Who's it for?
For the rider who cycles in milder winter conditions putting in base miles or intense interval efforts and demands an aerodynamic and lightweight cold weather jacket.
- Tall, micro-fleece lined, ergo collar forms to neck to protect against the elements
- 3 cargo and one zippered side pocket
- Light elastic cuff
- Long ducktail with PixelTM reflectivity protects rider’s backside
- Additional hi-vis logos and PixelTM reflective accents for visibility
- Tailoring and paneling system designed to fit a cyclist in the riding position
The front outer surface of the chest and sleeves receive a DWR treatment which adds an extra layer of water resistance to the garment. The treatment creates additional surface tension suspending water beads to the outer fringe of the garment where they can roll off before having the opportunity to penetrate the fabric.
Acqua Zero EcoTM treated fabric, derived from the water repellant G-Shield Collection, is used on the back and under arm panels. It provides more breathability and reduces overall weight. This time-tested fabric is low profile, hugs the body, and has a soft, smooth surface that is comfortable and warm.
The outer layer is a triple layer fabric with a 100% breathable windproof and water resistant membrane sandwiched between the DWR treated face fabric and a printed lining. The result is an impermeable barrier against the elements. The membrane’s breathability allows moisture to escape, facilitating Core Temperature management by preventing overheating. The AV 200 has great elasticity to ensure a perfect, non-constricting performance fit.
- Heat Retention
- The element blocking membrane in the front of the jacket helps maintain optimal CT while the Thunderbike back allows more generated heat to escape. This helps to maintain a constant Core Temperature during rides in more moderate conditions.
Reflective accents created via a revolutionary new refractive fabric, Pixel®, provides reflectivity without sacrificing the breathability qualities of a fabric.
We classify this jersey as "Race Fit". They are built to sit next to your skin for a tight aero fit. If you prefer to have a little room we suggest buying the next size up.
Measuring: To accurately measure your chest, measure across the fullest part of the chest just under your arm pits.
